The following images are up in the image article linked off of my announcement.
I don't know if there's anything you can do about it, but those articles aren't phone-friendly on my end. I can't zoom out or scroll sideways, so I can't view half of the images. (android + chrome)  I don't get on a PC too often these days.

Now that's a more aesthetically pleasing Jupiter to me.  Great work!

I had the same problem. You can have your phone's browser load the desktop site, which will then allow you to zoom in or out and scroll around.

Frontend templating is already set to be responsive for desktop, tablet and phone. Loading fine here and can zoom in and out. Not sure what the issue is.

Plain text scales fine (though no zoom). The table and pictures just don't want to play along.

Edit: As abou stated, desktop mode works.

Try tapping and holding on the picture.  In most browsers you'll get a "view image" option.   The image file is larger than what's shown on the page.

Desktop users can right click for the "view Image" option.

Ah, right. Done that too, brain's funny, substituting words when it can't find the right one. There was a tweet where a physics professor said he said "light crumb" instead of photon....

Anyway. Gyrfalcon oversized? Damn :/ Just how badly?

The guns are really long on original. Mech pack one the guns are cut down plus body redone.

.
The new one just came out, so i doubt there size comparison so far.
There only a picture of the mini on their website. Which in way hides what long-ness of the cannon/arms


Since Camospecs is DOWN.  There no good picture to show you.

Mine Gyrfalcon buried in mini-cases.  Trust me, the guns are huge on it, mini like size of a heavy mech in comparison to most of the minis.  Jupiter miniature i received would be classified as "Extra-Thick" by Achoo and slightly mis-matched.  Parts don't quite fit, but i made them fit anyways that hard way.

I can't say much for the current back-end functionality of the site, but many images can still be viewed.


The new variant also has the wings attached to the backpack piece for greater stability there.

Hey Speck, will the release schedule be updated after Gen Con?

And thanks for the photos.  Everything looks great.  Kudos to all the sculptors! 8) :thumbsup:

Thanks.   If you type in Camospecs.com -  it don't load.  I did web check see if the site was up or down, it says it down.



I wish there was another mech you can place next to the mini. I don't have access to mine right now.

Really curious on that one.  I remember being very disappointed in the original.
